Born from the Case Study movement, Case Study House #18, or “The West House” as it was known, by famed architect Rodney Walker, sits perched on a coastal bluff, and possesses a view of unimaginable beauty and splendor. The expansive unobstructed view of the pacific ocean that is the backdrop to this living piece of art is one that has to be seen and experienced to be truly appreciated. This largely untouched and preserved Case Study House personifies an architectural philosophy that defined an era and represents the exacting precision and intention of design with each room lovingly framing the Pacific Ocean beyond. Large walled floating windows in both the primary suite and the sitting room slide open to invite indoor/outdoor living. A double sided fireplace clad in copper allows warmth and light throughout. This Mid-Century gem features floor-to ceiling walls of glass, allowing ample sunlight to bathe its interiors, accentuating its ideal single story floor plan, one with an immaculate design that features a galley kitchen, a formal living and dining room, a Primary suite, a sitting room and two additional bedrooms. Owner enhanced amenities include a private exercise cabin with views to the lower lot, an infrared modern sauna and soaking hot tub. This unbelievably generous lot on over half an acre of lush land, set in the sought after area of Pacific Palisades, overlooking the ocean and nestled in an enclave amongst other case study homes allows a discerning buyer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop another architectural marvel on the lower lot, one that will compliment and showcase this prized home for generations to come.
